Eggs come from chickens. Make sense to me.

I did a Google search on "Star Trek Political Parties" and found this.

The site's actually political. But that's just fun art.

Like my Jedi predacessor, Qui-Gon Ginn, I am both wary and weary of politics.

it was gross enough called "eggnog", but somehow "chicken milk" makes it even worse. i will simply have the booze and forget the chickenog!

cheers and merry christmas!

The lightsaber-weilding beavers that have been running rampant in the lowlands as of late can not drink enough eggnog, and so it is hard to find in the grocery stores these days.

This site ammuses me. I shall spare you.

But if you don't keep egg noggin'...

You can garggle eggnog.
You might not want to, but you could.

No, the milk of a chicken you buy at the variety store these days is a thin imitation of the artery clogging nogs of yor.

EW! That's just nasty!

Chicken milk??

I don't even want to know what you call butter! :P

Bhakti said...

BTW, I'm currently drinking orange juice. What do you call that up there, Tree Sap??

flatlander said...

We call that stuff "liquid sunlight".
